It’s been a while since my last blogpost. That’s primarily beacuse I’m doing a lot of non-web work at the moment so there’s not too much to blog about. But now I received a question from a customer which I cannot answer. It seems SharePoint’s file saving functionality is a bit inconsistent when version control
Sooner as I expected, Microsoft is launching surface for the whole world to be seen. But it’s not going as fast as they’d like it to go. I’m wondering how soon we’ll actually see one, I’m reading things about 2000 orders in over 50 countries. That’s 40 per country on average, and that’s not so
Bart Wessels’ blog caught my eye once more, blogging about the possibility of adding presence to your own applications. This means you can enable the little popup menu, showing the users’ IM status, availability and contact information, in your own (webbased) applications. Very exiting and I will definitely be trying this soon. I am curious
In many organizations, Outlook Web Access is used to enable employees to view their e-mail and calendar online. In most cases, the enabled access uses Forms Authentication to display a neat Outlook login form in which users may enter their accountname and password to gain access to the web access environment. SharePoint is able to
For some reason I always seem to lose this URL somehow. So as a reminder, and to share a bit too; here’s MS’ website for requesting hotfixes online: https://support.microsoft.com/contactus2/emailcontact.aspx?scid=sw;en;1410&WS=hotfix.

A while ago, a user asked me why he wasn’t able to add a task to a default SharePoint tasklist and assign it to multiple persons. I wasn’t sure about this so I checked myself and indeed I wasn’t able to do this either. For some reason I didn’t really look too hard and didn’t found
As I’m writing this I’m on ‘holiday’; that is not working in the IT business. Before I started my job I was earning some money designing and operating lighting for theatre, popshows, etc. Currently I’m doing that again, and it feels good to be back! Finished the first gig yesterday where everyone was very pleased including
After installing and setting up a MOSS environment, we want to make sure our users have easy access. Most of the times the computername is selected by some network administrator and doesn’t match what we think is easy. Adding a DNS records and alternate access mappings can solve this problem if installed the right way.
Most of you will have seen Surface by now. Surface is a multi-touch display built into a table with very nice user interaction. I really dig new types of intuitive interfaces and this definitely is one of those. I found a new (it’s not brand new, but I didn’t see it before) video on YouTube
On a project I’m currently developing I needed to keep track of changes to database records made by users. Typically you would add 4 columns for this purpose: CreatedBy, CreatedOn, ModifiedBy and ModifiedOn. Filling these columns can be done via business logic offcourse, but I was looking for a sweeter solution (and found one!). As
